Morton/White Pass 52, Naselle 51: The Comets let a double-digit second-half lead slip away in the nonleague affair at Lyle Patterson Gymnasium on Saturday. “We let them off the hook,” coach Brian Macy said. “We had the opportunity to put the game away, but missed some lay-ins and they got back into the ball game. We just couldn’t buy a bucket.”
The Comets shot just 28 percent from the field, as the Timberwolves shot 55 percent. So despite just nine turnovers, Naselle found itself on the wrong end of the scoreboard. Jacob Eaton scored 16 points, Antonio Nolan had 12 and Corey Gregory finished with 10.
Toledo 59, Kalama 54: Despite a 14-point lead early in the fourth quarter, the Indians needed a 30-foot — “and I’m not exaggerating,” Toledo coach Grady Fallon said — 3-pointer from Andreas Malunat with just more than a minute to go to escape with the nonleague victory over Central 2B foe Kalama on Saturday in Toledo.
Kalama tied the game at 54-54 on a three free throws from Jackson Esary after the Chinooks rallied from a double-digit deficit. Esary finished with 12 points and Max Ross added 13.
Malunat finished with 16 points for Toledo, and Hayden Farbo added 16 as well. Fano Arceo-Hansen dropped in 14 points, and Westin Wallace hauled in nine caroms.
“They’re tough, and they’re pretty deep,” Fallon said. “They did just not go away.”
Toledo travels to Kalama for the league bout later this month.
